When it comes to home renos, I have lots of ideas but not a big budget. I am very fortunate that I come from a long line of handy people. DIYers who can fix and build pretty much anything they set their mind to. Myself, well I have talents but being ‘handy’ never was one of them until recently. As time passes and I find myself wanting to make changes to our home, I have learned if I want something done in a timely fashion, I need to figure it out and do it myself.
It is not really fair of me to make a to-do list for others since I would not appreciate them doing it to me. Plus it gives me an opportunity to really put myself to the test. Just because I have not done something before, does not mean I can not do it, right?!? I do realize I can call in a professional, but what will I learn? And to be honest, I just can not personally afford to pay someone for something I can figure out on my own.
For example installing a new faucet from American Standard.
I chose the Fluent Monoblock Faucet for our bathroom. We have been doing some home improvements and wanted to spruce things up a bit. Bathroom improvements are often frustrating and complicated, with American Standard’s Speed Connect faucets, “Do-It-Yourself” has never been easier.
I love the sleek look of this faucet and having just the one handle. This style is easy to clean and great for all members of the family to use with no help needed. This faucet is very modern and so easy to install, you can do it yourself!
